I never said that you can't plug things into a laptop, the
focus of my statement was the word "typically".

You can have many ethernets in a laptop (I have), but how many
laptops do firewalling, masquerading, traffic shaping,
load balancing, multihoming, fail over, ....?
As those are highly unusual on a laptop, they receive
less attention than laptop stuff as, e.g., having bluetooth audio.

Server-oriented usage appears to be the least important scenario
for Fedora at the moment; and I admit this can be considered
appropriate if "the users" have laptops, not servers.
